Student Wellbeing:

There are many events and resources promoted to schools to help address mental health and wellbeing issues in young people. The event below may interest some schools.  It is important to remember that effective support of student wellbeing requires multicomponent and multileveled interventions involving the whole school community. 
A recent literature review conducted by WA’s own Telethon Kids Institute for AIS NSW provides a terrific summary of effective school support in this area. Please see Here for the full report and executive summary.
The AISWA School Psychology Service is a resource available to schools to explore evidence-based social and emotional learning (SEL), mental health and wellbeing interventions.
Introducing Stand Tall, a not-for-profit organisation established to build hope, inspiration, a sense of value, connectedness, and belonging and help address mental health issues in young people. They are hosting a sold out in-person event for 6,000 students on June 9 at the ICC Sydney as well as streaming it live to reach more than 200,000 students all across Australia.
